It doesn't. VC4 uses makefiles (.mak), VC5 and VC6 use project and
workspace files (.dsp and .dsw).

I think that whoever is donating the time to maintain the make/project
files for VC should do it in whatever format is the most convenient
for them, and everyone else should either live with it, or donate
*their* time to supply project files for the older/newer versions.
